Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Rosey is a lifelong resident of Byron and Bob, who grew up in a neighboring town, moved to Byron in 2002. Bob is an Electrical Contractor and Rosey owns the Coos Canyon Rock & Gift Shop just up the road from the Cabin. The river is the common link which brought us together. We both were prospecting for gold in the same area along the river, and we found the greatest treasure of all -- each other. We both love the outdoors and enjoy all of the activities which are provided through the nature that surrounds us. We built this cabin together knowing one day we would build another home on a 100 acre piece of property which we own at the other end of town. Thus, our Cabin became available to rent.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Swift River is the most important aspect of our property. Besides the fun recreational activities it provides, it is also soothing and meditative. Nothing eases the stresses of daily life better than spending time along the Swift River. And this cabin is built right on the edge of the water.
